African Art

OK enough whining! My last two posts were so depressing! Shew! Did I lose you? Hope you were not coming here for cheering up the past few days. I'm better...my son is home for the weekend and I'm getting better at accepting all this. So to lighten things up a bit, I'm sharing this funny baby pic of me. Look at that smile and that big old fat tummy-I don't look much different now...that is in the tummy part! Heehee

So, last night I was looking at African Art on the internet. Just an image search for "African Art" led me to some of the most beautiful and colorful pieces. I want you to check it out if you have a chance: Martin Bulinya was one of my personal favorites. You just have to go and experience his art. Then click on "home" from his site and check out many of the others. I'm inspired to do some more pencil works using Martin Bulinya's works as inspiration. So, hopefully I can come up with something to post this weekend.

Meanwhile, I'm still working on the trunk and it is taking longer than I anticipated. I'm not sure if it is turning out like I wanted but then none of my art turns out as I fully intended. Each piece of work kind of speaks to me in terms of what else it needs and the direction it needs to go. So, you start out with one idea and you end up with something similiar to your idea but not quite the same. Though, the outcomes are still pleasing most of the time. Anyway, bla, bla, bla! Here is another funny light hearted pic of me. Have a great weekend!!!

Ohhh you're beautiful! I think I'd be posting pics of me all over the place if I looked as adorable as you do! Is that a kiss for me? lol

Glad your baby is home for now, I think it'll be easier and easier. Who knows, maybe one day you'll be like "AGAIN? Does he really NEED to be home for the weekend?". It could happen. xo
